Good news to DiGi subscribers, iPhone 3G S


  • What else u can say ... can't wait to own one iPhone from DiGi ... need to throw my Omnia away liow.
  • DiGi.Com Bhd, the Malaysian mobile-phone company controlled by Norway’s Telenor ASA, signed an agreement to sell Apple Inc’s iPhone in Malaysia to tap growth in a market that it forecasts will surge 10-fold in five years.

    “Growth is coming back this year,” DiGi’s chief executive officer Johan Dennelind said in an interview with Bloomberg television in Kuala Lumpur today. DiGi will start selling iPhone 3G and 3GS in “coming months,” he said.

    The three-year agreement will help DiGi increase sales more than 5 per cent cent this year, higher than the industry average, Dennelind said. DiGi’s sales rose 2 per cent last year, slowing from 10 per cent in 2008 as Malaysia’s economy shrank 1.7 per cent. The government forecasts economic growth of more than 4 per cent this year.

    The deal will end Maxis Communications Bhd’s monopoly on selling iPhones in Malaysia. Phone companies are focusing on data sales in the nation of 27 million people as smartphones become increasingly popular to access the Internet. Malaysia has more mobile phones than people, offering limited growth in voice calls. “The competition is going to be brutal,” said Scott Lim, who manages the equivalent of US$670 million, including Maxis shares, as chief executive officer of MIDF Amanah Asset Management Bhd in Kuala Lumpur.

    Jill Tan, a spokeswoman for Apple, said the company may make a comment later.

    DiGi’s agreement with Apple “is a step in the right direction,” said Khair Mirza, an analyst at Maybank Investment Bhd. who has a “hold” recommendation on the stock. - Bloomberg

Will be looking out to see if the packages are any better than Maxis. Hehehe... Price wars ahead, we consumers untung!

However, I think I'll wait for the new iPhone with 5MP (rumours) first.
